ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today the club has signed forward T.J. Hensick to a one-year contract extension.
Hensick, 24, played in seven games for Colorado last season, recording three points including a goal and two assists. In addition, he played in 58 games last season for Lake Erie of the AHL, scoring 20 goals and adding 50 assists for 70 points. In 2008-09 he played in 61 games for the Avalanche and recorded 21 points (4g, 17a).

At the height of the Avalanche-Red Wings rivalry, East Lansing, Mich., native T.J. Hensick wasn’t yet a teenager.
His family had Detroit season tickets, and while dreaming of one day wearing the winged wheel on the Joe Louis Arena ice, Hensick was in Darren McCarty’s corner — so to speak — during McCarty’s avenging encounters with Colorado winger Claude Lemieux.
So when Hensick plays his first NHL game at “The Joe” on Tuesday night, it might feel a bit strange for a millisecond or two. He plays for Colorado, which will be opening a five-game trip against the Red Wings.
